Yesterday Mayweather Promotions (the company headed by Floyd) was granted a Nevada promoter’s license in a unanimous vote by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.  So what does it mean for Mayweather?!  He’s securing his future.  In the words of Hov — he’s a business, mannn.  Check it out…




Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s Mayweather Promotions was given a promoters license on a unanimous vote by the Nevada State Athletic Commission at Wednesday’s monthly commission meeting, just the latest sign that Mayweather intends to make the promotion business his focus once his in-ring career is over.

“We want to get things done the right way and continue to bring big fights to Las Vegas even when my career is over,” Mayweather, who lives in Las Vegas, told the commission. “We can continue to do record-breaking numbers after I’m gone by doing it the right way.”

Mayweather Promotions, which has about a dozen fighters under contract but has relied upon Golden Boy Promotions to co-promote with it in order to use its license, is now free to put on its own shows in three states. It was licensed late last year in Washington for a card it did on its own and it was granted a license in New York on July 14.
